Planning Your Garden

Gardens at Monticello

“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden”. ~ Thomas Jefferson

From the historic flower displays at Jefferson’s Monticello to a patio herb garden, we can all enjoy the delights of nature in our own yards and gardens.

Now is the perfect time to start planning this year’s garden.

There are many ways that you can enjoy time in your yard.  From growing your own herbs, fruits and vegetables, to creating a perfect zen garden, there is something for everyone.

One of the ways we recommend starting is to think about the last year and how you utilized your time outdoors.

We recommend looking at some different Gardening Pins to see what resonates with you.  Get some ideas of what colors and textures you like so when you are ready to design your yard, you’ll already know a general idea of what direction you would like to go.  It is important to know your soil type, light directions and water source to avoid planting anything that may not do well.
